The Importance of a grain moisture meter
When storing grain for any period, it is important to be aware of the risk areas of grain temperature and moisture. As the graphic shows, high temperature or high moisture means that the grain is at risk from insect infestation or fungal growth.
There is a safe storage zone (the hatched area on the graphic) which allows moist grain to be stored if it is cooled to about 5°C or very dry grain to be stored at temperatures up to 15°C.
Accurate moisture measurement is critical at harvest time and throughout drying and storage. So it makes sense to use a moisture meter that has a track record for providing consistent, accurate and reliable grain readings.
